Middle Tennessee State vs. LSU


The Middle Tennessee State University Blue Raiders travel to Baton Rouge to take on the #2 LSU Fighting Tigers this Saturday. This game had every indication of being a "rent-a-win" or "cupcake" until last Thursday when MTSU went blow-for-blow with top 10 ranked Louisville on national TV. MTSU is not to be taken lightly, but LSU should still win this game easily. LSU last and only meeting with MTSU was a 30-14 victory in 2001.

LSU's defense is light-years ahead of Louisville and while MTS may be able to move the ball some against LSU, they won't come close to the 42 points they scored last week. LSU should go up big early and be able to provide valuable playing time and game experience to backups and future leaders for the purple and gold. With a few players nursing injuries, mainly QB Matt Flynn and S Craig Steltz, backups will be put in the game early. Flynn may start, but look for Ryan Perriloux to see the majority of the snaps.
